You all may think that because I have a food blog that I must be cooking from scratch everyday…. Well, not quite. Actually, not even close!
As a single mom of a super active toddler, I do not have the opportunity to cook and bake as much as I used to. There just simply isn’t enough time in the day. From laundry, cleaning, running errands, work, toddler-friendly activities, bath time, story time, and on and on. I’m sure your day look similar, right!?
I have had to adapt and make compromises where I can. I still want to eat healthy, but now I buy more ready-made snacks and meals so I have healthy options available when I am starving and apt to reach for the nearest candy bar!
I have found some really tasty treats that either can be bought at your local Whole Foods, or that can be shipped right to your front door. I am quite picky, so you can be sure the stuff I am sharing with you today is really really good!
I found a sweet treat to curb your dessert cravings, a salty nosh to knock out that snack attack, and a super tasty and filling meal delivery option that is just “heat and eat!” Here we go!
These tasty little bit-sized cookies made from coconut, almond flour and maple syrup. All the ingredients are organic too! They are soft and chewy, just like a cookie should be! They have the perfect amount of sweetness and they come in a variety of flavors including Brownie, Strawberry Almond, Lemon Pie, Vanilla Maple, Cacao Nib and Orange Dreamsicle. My favorites were the Brownie and Vanilla Maple! They are available at Whole Foods.
These savory bites are made from brussel sprouts, and they remind me of kale chips. They are loaded with vitamin C, folate, vitamin B, potassium and omega-3’s, so no guilt with this snack! Chomp away! My fav flavor was the Chili Pumpkin, although Cheezy Herb was also yummy! Find them at Whole Foods.
Paleo On The Go: Cajun Kielbasa Alfredo Over Kelp Noodles
Paleo on the Go is a fantastic ready-made meal delivery service. They have so many options it’s hard to choose! I decided to go with the Cajun Kielbasa Alfredo Over Kelp Noodles as I was craving a carb-y pasta dish. The meal arrived at my door, and all I had to do was heat it up. The kelp noodles were drenched in a flavorful creamy sauce and topped with slightly spicy kielbasa. It was delicious and filled me up! I may have even licked the plate, the sauce was that good!
Try them all out and let me know what you think!
